MEINHARD FORSTREITER GRUNER VELTLINER SCHIEFER - 2006
Dry white Gruner Veltliner from Austria with 13.5% alcohol.
Pale gold color with complex nose of lime, citrus, pear, orange and hints of petrol. On the palate there's honeydew melon, sour apples, pears, orange creamsicle and banana on the finish. Some frizzante in the glass. Oak and honey-caramel emerge on the second day.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Packed with flavors and complexity. This is a superb Gruner. Retails for around $17 making this a tremendous offering. I love this wine and highly recommend it.
